Nicolas Boulay, the Quebec native signed by Ottawa on February 12th is looking to be a key to the REDBLACKS defense this upcoming season. Boulay, product of Sherbrooke University, was originally drafted and signed by Montreal in round 4 of the 2012 CFL Draft. Nicolas has been a big piece to the defenses he has been on, rallying up 58.5 tackles and 5 sacks in the 9 games from his 2012 season in Sherbrooke and 102 tackles, 1 forced fumble within the 97 games played for Montreal.
The newest REDBLACKS linebacker, has a brother who has spent time on the defensive line on Winnipeg, Saskatchewan, and Edmonton. The two siblings actually have had games played against each other on August 8th 2014, Montreal played Edmonton. Edmonton came out on top 33-23, but Nicolas won the battle between the siblings, getting one tackle, and a fumble recovery.
This off-season, shortly after Nicolas was signed, I was fortunate to ask him a few questions.
